There is nothing finer in New England than a warm summer night under the stars. That is what Rainer and I enjoyed last night out in our garden. The fireflies were flying high and the stars were bright. It is very quiet where we live and quite dark. This year I bought a couple of solar powered LED lanterns made from a silky fabric mounted on traditional chinese lantern style wire forms. They have the tiniest little LED in them which cast a lovely glow that doesn't interfere with star gazing or firefly enjoyment. What was your weekend like?
